This little statue might be from India. Base on the population where I live, this would not be too unusual to find. The statue is an image of what I believe to be a village boy, wearing no top, and carrying a basket. The statue is mounted with three pins on a wooden base.
The little statue appears to be hand carved but the carving is not very professional - in my humble opinion. I think that it might date to around the middle of the last century, but this is just a guess.
There are lines in the material but not the typical cross lines/Schreger lines for ivory. At least I didn't see any. I assume that the statue might be cut of some sort of bone.
Thanks for looking:)
